Olympic Lifting Cycle
How did the testing go? Anyone a mutant? You probably realised that mutant level is set ridiculously high and may never be reached by anyone! Always good to have something to aim for ;-)
This next month we are shifting our focus to Olympic Lifting. Why? Well, why not? We can all stand to get better at it; Whether that means perfecting technique or lifting heavier. This is also a great time to step back from a lot of high intensity (think Open) metcons. Don't worry, we will still be doing those, we are CrossFitters after all! We will just be placing more emphasis on the Olympic Lifts.
After doing a couple of these Oly focused sessions you will soon realise that they are intense in their own way and take a lot out of you. Be prepared to snatch and clean and jerk a lot! You will see a lot of numbers (percentages) thrown around in the programming. Don't get too caught up in them, they are merely there to give you a rough guideline for what load you should be lifting. Your coaches will give you a better understanding before each class
Make sure you record ALL of these sessions so that you can build on your lifts each week. Feel free to geek out as much or as little as you like on this, it's going to be fun!
